John and Joseph were married in an incredible rooftop ceremony filled with sleek black and white accents at Toronto’s Malaparte. Guests then made their way indoors to find an abundance of fresh green florals, flickering votives, and gourmet food from Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering.

Lindsay and Chris said “I do” at the Malaparte, an Oliver & Bonacini event space located in the heart of Toronto's Entertainment District. The elegant flower arrangements had guests swooning and consisted of ivory hydrangea and roses in shades of peach, pink, and light purple. The floor-to-ceiling windows, crisp white linens, and floral-filled tablescapes made for one unforgettable day.

Inspired by the Russian film Doctor Zhivago, this Glitterati Style File is the epitome of rustic luxury. Shot inside O&B's sophisticated French restaurant, Auberge du Pommier, this warm and elegant styled shoot featured a mixture of white and green florals, cozy wooden accents, flickering white candles, and of course, gourmet appetizers prepared by Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering.

Alana and Andrew, the latter of whom happens to be the president of Oliver & Bonacini, said "I do" in a sleek city soirée designed to celebrate the couple’s true romance. The intimate celebration took place at Arcadian Loft and unsurprisingly featured amazing food. A dozen different varieties of canapés were served during the cocktail hour and dinner entrées ranged from a hearty grilled rib eye to a broiled sustainable sea bass and lobster bisque.

A love of all things glam and tropical served as a major source of inspiration for Anya's bridal shower. Breezy palm fronds and retro powder pink flamingoes wowed guests, while elegant gold accents and a Chanel-themed dessert table provided a luxe feel throughout. Planned and designed by the bride herself, who happens to be at the helm of event planning boutique, La Chic Soiree, this pre-wedding celebration was major bridal shower goals!
